Setting Up PPPoE

As root, run pppoe-setup. Answer the questions.

GOTCHA: on the last question, answer 1 STAND ALONE.


Connecting With PPPoE

As root, run pppoe-start.


You should now be connected.


PROBLEM: It reports connected but, I can't get to the internet.

FIX: It's probably screwed up your routing table.

route del default
route add default dev ppp0

Your connection should be working now.

To make this process automatic at bootup, add the following lines at the end of file /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

pppoe-start
route del default
route add default dev ppp0

and then reboot...
